amen. Every word is truth.
great points. There is no logical or rational reason why pot is still illegal in this country. Not one.
not certain, but taking meds should prolong life, but the reactions they cause that kills, are more than people care to know about. TV is often recalling meds with severe side effects
I have epilepsy, and anti-seizure meds destroyed my intrinsic factor, turned my red blood platelets fatty, gave me an ulcer and damaged my liver. I stopped taking the meds, as honestly, I was much healthier with just having to endure the seizures.
Beth.sorry to hear that. It is 1of my biggest gripes re medicine & drugs. Patients R never properly informed about the risks vs. the benefits. I had severe reactions to cholest. meds & thyroid meds. I now trust in God, & a healthy diet &a
I agree that marijuana should be legalized and prescription meds are too harmful. Plus doctors can prescribe anything they want. There is no system. Every time my husband visits his doctor, he comes home with a prescription for steroids!
Depending on the illness, some prescriptions are intended only to relieve pain and discomfort. They are not intended or expected to prolong life, but to just make it as comfortable as possible for the patient. My mother died from ALS. There is pain.
Washington is in the process of proving that otherwise. It's getting pretty interesting in this ol' Evergreen State
Let's hope they can win it. A few years ago, the state of Maine made pot legal, & the fed gov told them that if they did not continue 2 arrest & prosecute people who possess & use it they would send fed agents to Maine @ make sure they
Even if marijuana is legalized, it is going to be regulated. I would suspect the legal stuff will be cultivated in a manner to make it a little less potent, thus the illegal market will still continue.
such cynicism. I would guess the first step to legalizing it would B 2 allow individuals 2 grow 1-2 plants 4 personal use. This would alleviate some of the drug trafficking but that won't happen. there is too much money being made off it now.
That is not true. It's legal in Washington State and Colorado.
But I agree with what you're saying otherwise :)
It cannot be legal in any state when it is illegal by federal gov decree. State may lessen or ignore the penalties but they cannot legalize pot, anymore that states can totally ban abortions.
it depends. I see what you're saying that yes, the federal government can certainly come in and stop it, but they're in a tricky place. It's a State Right to have marijuana be legalized. If they shut it down, they'll be opening quite the can of worms
